Behind the Scenes with Aveda and M.A.C. - Fall 2013 NYFW

by Sarah A. Freiseis
Often times audiences forget about all the action that takes place backstage prior to any runway show or collection presentation. We got in on the action with coverage at Christian Sirano and Ann Yee.

At Sirano, it was all about Antoinette Beenders. This wonder woman of hair is the Aveda Global Creative Director. She created fishtail braids inspired by the golden age of Russian Opera in alignment with the designer's collection inspired by the same theme. The drama continued with cosmetics, and eyes got lower lid kohl attention from M.A.C. make-up artist Polly Osmond.

For Ann Yee, make-up featured bronzed eyes and plum colored lips compliments of M.A.C meanwhile the hair by Allen Ruiz (Aveda) was a sculptured hive of zigzagged tresses using pinning techniques and Aveda Air Control Hairspray.
